Healing with medicinal plants is as old as mankind itself. Since time immemorial people have tried to find medications to alleviate pain and cure different illnesses. In every period, every successive century from the development of humankind and advanced civilizations, the healing properties of certain medicinal plants were identified, noted, and conveyed to the successive generations. The benefits of one society were passed on to another, which upgraded the old properties, discovered new ones, till present days. The continuous and perpetual people's interest in medicinal plants has brought about today's modern and sophisticated fashion of their processing, cultivation and usage.

More and more people around the world are taking a look at urban farming, which offers to make our food as "local" as possible. By growing what we need near where we live, we decrease the "food miles" associated with long-distance transportation. We also get the freshest produce money can buy, and we are encouraged to eat in season. Another benefit of urban farming is that it can add greenery to cities, reducing harmful runoff, increasing shading, and countering the unpleasant heat island effect. Garden plots can help people reconnect with the Earth, and gain a greater appreciation for where our food comes from. Rooftop and patio gardens create peaceful places for relaxation or contemplation. The new habit of growers to create their own little farming areas ( on terraces, indoor box or on urban farming) perfectly matches this type or approach to cultivation: moreover, it offers fun for the herbs collectors and great nutrients for those whom grow organic for healing or cooking purposes.
